Seahawks' Darwin Thompson: Totals 17 yards Saturday
Thompson rushed three times for 15 yards and caught his lone target for two yards in Saturday's 32-25 preseason loss to the Steelers. He also returned one kickoff for 14 yards.
Thompson didn't play on offense until the fourth quarter, as Kenneth Walker, Travis Homer and DeeJay Dallas all took the field before him. He wasn't effective in his limited reps. The 2019 sixth-round pick is on the roster bubble.... See More ... See Less
Seahawks' Darwin Thompson: Signing with Seattle
The Seahawks will sign Thompson to a reserve/future contract Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of ProFootballNetwork.com reports.
After spending time on the Tampa Bay and Kansas City practice squads during the 2021 campaign, Thompson will have a chance to carve out a role in Seattle during the offseason. He appeared in 26 games for the Chiefs during his first two seasons in the league, carrying 64 times for 225 yards and touchdowns and adding 16 receptions for 108 yards and another score....

Darwin Thompson: Reverts to practice squad
Thompson reverted to the Chiefs' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log.
Thompson was elevated from the practice squad prior to Sunday's wild-card round win over the Steelers. However, after Darrel Williams (toe) was cleared to take the field, Thompson was inactive for the contest. So long as no further injuries pop up in the Chiefs' backfield, Thompson figures to remain on the practice squad for the rest of the postseason.... See More ... See Less

Thompson (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's wild-card matchup against the Steelers, Matt Derrick of ChiefsDigest.com reports.
Thompson was elevated from Kansas City's practice squad Saturday, but he won't suit up for the playoff opener since Darrel Williams (toe) is available. Derrick Gore and Jerick McKinnon will serve as the primary backup options behind Williams.... See More ... See Less
Chiefs' Darwin Thompson: Elevated by Kansas City
The Chiefs elevated Thompson to their active roster Saturday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.
Thompson joined Kansas City's practice squad Friday after spending the regular season on the Buccaneers' practice squad. He'll now join the Chiefs' active roster ahead of Sunday's wild-card matchup against Pittsburgh. The 24-year-old will provide additional depth in the backfield because Clyde Edwards-Helaire (shoulder) has been ruled out and Darrel Williams (toe) is questionable.... See More ... See Less
Darwin Thompson: Lands on practice squad
Thompson signed with the Chiefs' practice squad Friday, per the NFL's official transactions log.
Thompson was cut from the Buccaneers' practice squad Thursday. He now returns to the franchise that selected him in the sixth round of the 2019 draft.

Darwin Thompson: Cut from practice squad
Thompson has been released from the Buccaneers' practice squad.
The move frees up a spot for the team's addition of wideout John Brown to the practice squad. Thompson had given the Bucs some added running back depth down the stretch, but he's the odd man out now that Leonard Fournette (hamstring) and Giovani Bernard (hip) appear to be nearing a return to action ahead of Tampa Bay's postseason run....

Darwin Thompson: Signs to Bucs' practice squad
Thompson signed with the Buccaneers' practice squad Thursday, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.
Thompson is a relatively high-profile signing by practice squad standards, considering he logged 26 games of regular-season action with the Chiefs over the last two campaigns, even drawing one start over that span. Thompson lost out on a roster spot this summer due to Kansas City's deep backfield, but the Utah State product will now garner a closer look from the defending champions.... See More ... See Less
Darwin Thompson: Time with Chiefs at an end
Kansas City waived Thompson on Monday, Sam McDowell of The Kansas City Star reports.
Thompson failed to reach the 4.0 YPC mark in either of his two seasons with the Chiefs, across which span he logged a total of 26 regular-season appearances. With Jerick McKinnon and Darrel Williams (head) around to provide depth behind Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle), and Derrick Gore having put together a solid preseason, Thompson's spot on the roster was rendered superfluous. The third-year pro will look for another opportunity elsewhere in the league.... See More ... See Less
Chiefs' Darwin Thompson: Gets six touches
Thompson rushed three times for 11 yards and caught all three of his targets for 14 yards in Friday night's 28-25 preseason win over the Vikings.
Thompson entered the game behind Jerick McKinnon, who finished with five touches for 27 yards. Behind him, though, Derrick Gore ripped off 106 yards on his 11 touches, including a 56-yard touchdown catch. With that added twist to finish the preseason, it'll be very interesting to see who the Chiefs name their third tailback prior to Week 1's opener against the Browns.... See More ... See Less

Chiefs' Darwin Thompson: Lands on COVID list
The Chiefs placed Thompson on the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, NFL reporter Aaron Wilson reports.
Thompson hasn't necessarily tested positive for the virus, but he'll need to clear the NFL's health and safety protocols before rejoining the team. The 24-year-old is expected to fill a depth role in the backfield for Kansas City behind Clyde Edwards-Helaire, Darrel Williams and Jerick McKinnon this season.... See More ... See Less
